Pixelitis Review: New Super Mario Bros. U

"Recent side-scrolling Mario games have lost some of that magic we grew up with. Sure, New Super Mario Bros. Wii was an excellent platformer, but it streamlined the Mario formula into a much more linear game, while also lacking any significant or rewarding challenge—a definite step back from the days of Super Mario World.

That’s where New Super Mario Bros. U comes in. Leading up to the game’s release, Nintendo promised a return to form – a throwback of sorts to the days of classic Mario on the new Wii U.

For the most part, Nintendo has succeeded in this endeavor. Even though rescuing Princess Peach (again) is pretty easy, collecting each level’s star coins and unlocking secret stages will delight those in the market for a tough challenge and a return to the days of Mario’s prime."

- Lowell Bell (New Super Mario Bros. U, Wii U) 8/10
